This hotel was an embarrassment. Where do I start .... Check in staff rude, the official photos provided by hotel are misleading - when you are on the 'beach' you overlook a pile of rocks, most of sunbeds haven't been cleaned (bird ****) all over them. We were told we would get our room with extra bed in 20 mins....

Let's start by saying this hotel was built in the late 70's to what was then the highest standard available - and is still very very good by most standards. There are a few signs of wear and tear - but you have to look very hard to find them! We stayed here for 7 nights on the all inclusive...

Fantastic hotel. Old school familiarity. Great staff who look after your every whim. Special thanks to Lawrence and Godfrey at breakfast, Shiju at the entry and Melanie at the concierge desk. And last but not least Shaleem who looked after our room. Life guards at the pools were great with the kids too. The hotel is also in the perfect...

This is not a real beach resort! It is more like a marina / lagoon . Dirty beach beds with stained bird toilet; (for days!). Noisy from music at the pool topped up with construction noise all round ... one cannot rest and relax! This construction will last for few years. A few rude staff and command of English poor...

The Intercontinental is not the newest swanky 5 star hotel in Abu Dhabi, but it offers good value for money. We stayed for 8 nights on a half board package. Our room was slightly dated (the hotel is over 30 years old), but it was comfortable, and spotlessly clean. The staff were excellent. They are very well trained, with good...
